Traditional Foods in the Southeastern States
The southeast region is famous for fried foods, seafood, barbecue and Cajun food in Louisiana.
Being from the south, I ate a steady diet of fried food. I never really thought much about it until I became an adult and then I realized that almost everything that our family ate was fried. We literally fried everything – vegetable, meats, fish and seafood.
The coastal portion of the southeast has large areas of wetlands and swamps which provides a sustainable amount of fish and aquatic life making freshwater wildlife and seafood a large portion of the local diet.

When traveling to the southeast, you can visit places from the past, enjoy life in the present or peek into the future. You can explore the full range of nature’s limits by seeing underground caves, look at life in the sea, watch the sunrise or sunset on a white sand beach, hike in the mountains or just relax in the warm waters of the hot springs.
I will be making more posts on things to do in the Southeastern Region of the United States, so check back later to see my future posts on the Southeast.
